No, the problem is you guys are reading things that I haven't said.

I said that replacing PCs with workstations is harder because PCs are
very cheap and fast, and you can't get workstations with the same speed
in the same price range.

You've blown things all out of proportion since then.

Also, you give counter-examples like a Sun U60, which would feel like a
downgrade to most PC users.

PCs are cheap power, and since the market is driven by price and
software features, it makes workstations a hard sell.
